It’s been two years since we’ve had a homeschool All Saints Eve party, but this year it was announced on Oct 20 that we were starting up the tradition again. I spent Friday and Saturday sewing costumes, which turned out pretty well. Maria was St. Bernadette, Johnathan was St. Anthony, Alexander was St. Michael, and Joseph was St. Juan Diego. Maria and John slipped out the door before I could get a picture of them, but here are the little boys:
Daniel thought Joseph’s makeup was really interesting. (“What is it with you people in the last week? First Sarah makes her eyes really strange and now you have black on your face!”)
I made my first pleat on Alex’s bottoms, and it turned out pretty well.
Daniel was a lion from Noah’s Ark. This costume I didn’t make.
He found the mane a little annoying.
But that’s OK, because he has a mane of his own!
When we got home, everybody dived into their candy. Maria didn’t like caramel apples, so she gave hers to me.
Chewy pieces of candy are a good way to lose teeth.
Joseph! You look so different!! The photo makes you look like you have brown eyes! Daniel might be trying to figure just who you are for sure.
Alexander you look like you are having a good time. I’m glad you conquered the serpent!
Oh, Sarah, back to the days of getting food on your face, ha, ha. Excellent job on the costumes, especially the pleat! You are a natural.
Thanks for sharing with us.
Love, Grandad & Grandma
Daniel is a good “lion actor”. His curly locks fit in just right.
